Pub number 2 was The Grove which is one of Tunbridge Wells oldest pubs.

A short stroll down towards the Pantiles and a sharp left to old Tunbridge Wells village and The Grove is located on a corner.

It’s 1pm when we arrive here and there are 3 people in of which 1 is the barmaid. A friendly greeting was given to us as we perused the 4 pumps with 4 ales on. My choice was Truman's Lazarus @ 4.2%, a decent pint.

Lots of beer pump clips all over the walls by the dart board, I never get bored of checking all the clips and seeing what ales have been served.

In addition to the Dart board there’s a Pool table by the front door and a television on the back wall near the toilets, though on this visit none of these were in use.

Wooden flooring & panelling throughout this lovely pub, almost like a pub should be.

Still a good little place to seek out up the hill as the beers are always well kept and very drinkable.
Harveys Sussex and Landlord were my choices and I wasn't disappointed.

There's not a lot of room what with the pool table on the right and spare seats are at a premium.

Lots of character however and the sort of place you don't want to change. Pleased to note the Jack Russell is still on the scrounge at the bar!

Good beer and obviously popular amongst real ale enthusiasts and locals. It can be quite a battle to get into the pub as it's a small place with few seats and a pool table. No pretensions and full of character- not least the Jack Russell who never seems to stray far from the bar!

OK but over rated I would say.
In here last Saturday after visiting the Compasses up the road.
If this place is in the GBG why not the Compasses which is far supirior.
Quite small one bar pub has 4 Hand Pulls.
Harveys BB & Olympia, Tim Taylors Landlord and Youngs Bitter.
I tried a pint of the Harveys BB which was OK @ £3.35 a pint.

A cracking little gem of a pub off the beaten track, good selection of beers, very much a locals venue, everyone in there on first name terms with everyone else. Small and intimate only the quiz machine in the corner annoyed. Well worth a visit.
